Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre was established in 1967 and is the first and largest of its kind in the West. It is located in a peaceful valley on the banks of the river Esk among the scenic rolling hills of the Scottish borders. As well as a centre of Buddhist wisdom and learning, and offering the highest standards of Buddhist teachings, it is also a centre for the preservation of Tibetan Buddhism, arts, medicine and culture. Founded by Dr Akong Tulku Rinpoche and under the guidance of Abbot and Retreat Master Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, Kagyu Samye Ling's activity extends around the world through an international network of Dharma centres. Samye Ling represents one branch of Rokpa Trust, a non-profit umbrella organisation with branches in humanitarian, healing and spiritual areas of activity. These include a broad range of charitable and humanitarian aid projects both in the UK and around the world; the Holy Island Project, a small island off the west coast of Scotland dedicated to world peace, interfaith spirituality and ecological sustainability, that is open for the benefit of all; and Tara Rokpa, an organisation committed to the preservation and growth of traditional Tibetan medicine, as well as the development and promotion of Tara Rokpa Therapy. Kagyu Samye Ling is open to people of all faiths and religions, and welcomes you for short visits or to come and participate in any of the diverse courses available throughout the year. From weekend Dharma courses of all levels, to all-inclusive retreats at our Purelands Retreat Centre, to drawing, painting or Tai Chi - or if you would simply like to just come and have a look around, Kagyu Samye Ling has something to offer everyone.
